About.com has been running its Catholicism Readers’ Choice Awards over the past three weeks. If you haven’t voted yet, time is running out. Finalists have been named in 10 different categories and readers can vote in each category once a day. There are only five days left, as voting closes on March 21.
EWTN and the National Catholic Register have been named in several categories, including Best Website, Best Newspaper, Best Radio Show, Best Twitter, and Best Facebook Page. If you’re so inclined, please visit and vote in these, and all of the, categories.
The interim results will let you know who is leading in each category. Currently, the Register is leading only in the Best Newspaper category. Register readers, let’s change that!
I especially want to put a plug in for “Register Radio.” If you’ve been listening to the program and enjoy it, please visit About.com’s Best Catholic Radio Show page and cast your vote for the show. “As they say, it’s not over till it’s over, and with only 1,674 votes cast in this category, anything could happen,” said Scott Richert, who oversees the Guide to Catholicism section at About.com.
